A nice machine

Advantages: It actually works!
Disadvantages: No HDMI
This DVD recorder has lasted over 7 years so far, and still works fine. I find Panasonic gear pretty dependable on the whole and this is no exception. The build quality is such that it feels like it will continue to last.
The inbuilt on screen menus when burning discs are intuitive and simple to use, and as a player, it seems to even play scratched discs that won't work on my laptop or Sony PVR downstairs.
For connecting camcorders, the connectors are hidden behind the front flap - it's ideal for this use and that's primarily why I bought it - to record from camcorders onto DVD. I also bought it as a replacement for my VHS video recorder - I burned my videos onto DVD and thus uncluttered the lounge cupboard from tapes.
It also has a neat, concisely laid out remote control, with enough buttons for quick access while not appearing too cluttered. No HDMI as it is too old, but otherwise, a smashing bit of kit.
Summary: Worth considering second hand
